Carver Lake Park in Woodbury offers family-friendly amenities including a swimming beach and volleyball court, a picnic area, an accessible playground, and a bike trail. The park has restrooms available onsite. Leashed pets are allowed, but owners must pick up after them. Note: This is not the same park as Carver Park Reserve in Victoria.

Carver Lake Beach

The beach is unguarded. During swimming season (Memorial Day to Labor Day), park patrons are allowed to swim from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Because there is no lifeguard on duty, Woodbury parks reminds patrons to watch kids carefully when they are in or around the water, to teach them to swim and develop safety skills and to wear life jackets when appropriate
